What we’re about

Club Tread Victoria is a hiking club that has been established in Victoria for over 30 years. We are a registered Society. We use Meetup to schedule our hikes and other events. Our day-hiking and walking events on the South Island run year round. In the winter months we also have snowshoeing and ski trips to Mt. Washington, and cross-country skiing closer to Victoria as weather permits. From April to October you can expect hiking, and cycling events in the Cowichan Valley, the Gulf Islands and the San Juan Islands along with weekend and multi-day trips further afield.

Membership
The club is open to new members.
You can become a guest member of Club Tread by joining on this Meetup site. A newcomer is permitted to join the Club and pay the annual fee after participating in at least one event. Newcomers also have the option to participate in up to 3 events without paying if they prefer to try more before joining. Once the membership fees are paid, they can participate in Paid-up Members only events.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME HIKES AND ACTIVITIES MAY BE LIMITED TO PAID UP MEMBERS OF CLUB TREAD. GUEST MEMBERS WHO HAVE ONLY SIGNED UP ON MEETUP ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THOSE ACTIVITIES.

To become a fully paid Club Tread member, after completing at least one event you can join here (or go to our website and click on "Join VCT")
